Watch seagulls soaring while you stroll around this popular spot, part of the revived Duluth waterfront. Nearby are a sculpture garden, jazz clubs, coffee shops, motels and restaurants. If you like ships, stand on the pier and watch huge boats and ships, some from around the world, come and go daily.

The lake walk around Lake Superior is gorgeous and it's great. Canal Park gets a little crazy. Fun shops and restaurants are all around the area. Most people want to go to Canal Park so it can get super busy and we spent about two...More

After 5 hours in the car we were thrilled to have this beautiful walk to stretch our legs and take in the beautiful view. It was pretty busy as a lot of people had the same idea, but it was still very enjoyable.

Great family fun on a weekend. So much to see and do. Kids went swimming, had ice cream and grabbed something for lunch. It's a great time.

I don't believe that Tall Ships Duluth is an event held every year, it seems that it is every 2-3 years on the Great Lakes. Duluth was 2013, and 2016.
